The Organizing Committee of the 7th International Human Microbiome Congress 2018, invite you to our premier microbiome conference in picturesque Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland, on June 26-28th, 2018.  Aided by the IHMC board, the local committee from the APC Microbiome Institute is organizing a cutting-edge microbiome meeting that will focus on the latest science developments, as well as a strong industry-led session on bringing microbiome technology to the marketplace.

Killarney ( is a world-renowned and vibrant town in the midst of the Killarney National Park, nestled between the Lakes of Killarney and mountain range, the McGillycuddy Reeks. It is the gateway to a plethora of vacation opportunities on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, and the Ring of Kerry circular sight-seeing tour. Leading golf-courses, trout and salmon fishing, hill-walking, boating, horse riding and historical sight-seeing, are literally at the door step of the conference venue the INEC Killarney ( Please note – Accommodation in Killarney is limited during June, please book ASAP!)

We look forward to seeing you in Killarney!

On behalf of the IHMC 2018 committee,




Professors Fergus Shanahan & Paul W. O’ Toole.



The splendour falls on castle walls 
And snowy summits old in story: 
The long light shakes across the lakes, 
And the wild cataract leaps in glory.
